Preparation steps


For the sauce, peel the shallots and garlic and chop finely. Rinse the bell pepper and dice finely. Add the butter and oil in a hot frying pan and sauté the onions with the garlic until transparent. Add the tomatoes, season with salt, pepper and sugar and simmer gently for about 20 minutes. Rinse the basil, shake dry and chop finely. In the last 5 minutes, stir the basil in the sauce, to taste.


For the filling, peel the onion and garlic and finely chop. Rinse the thyme, if necessary, shake dry and strip the leaves. Rinse the spinach and shake dry. Clean the mushrooms and finely chop. Melt the butter in a hot pan and sweat the onion with the garlic until transparent. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the spinach and mix together. Cook for a few more minutes until the liquid is almost completely evaporated, then stir in the ricotta and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.


Cook the pasta in salted water until very al dente. Shock under cold water and drain well. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling in each shell and place in an oiled baking dish. Pour sauce over the noodles and cook for about 20 minutes in the oven, then sprinkle with pecorino and bake for another 5 minutes. Serve hot.
